To find the perfect fit and flattering dresses for plus size women can be quite a challenge. Still, some dresses such as those with an empire style waist i.e. dresses which have waist slightly above the natural waistline, sometimes right under the bust, can make you look slimmer. Such slimming dresses are a great choice as evening dresses for women with a big bottom and tummy.

Special occasion dresses with jackets are suitable for the persons who have bulky arms and broad shoulders. Such dresses fit nicely on the body and come with a small jacket which covers the upper back from behind and forms a kind of a squarish neck in the front. Sometimes these plus size special occasion dresses with sleeves are buttoned on top in the front, giving a kind of peek-a-boo effect, revealing just the right amount of cleavage!

Go in for darker colors. Black is the favorite choice of women on the heavier side as it makes them look slimmer. However, you do not have to just stick to black, you can opt for other dark and bright colors such as purple, red, dark blue and bottle green, as well.
